ErdoIan’s party likely to struggle forming new government

Turkeyand’s ruling party has been left with few options for a new government after it was stripped of its parliamentary majority and opposition parties ruled out joining it in a coalition pact.
President Recep Tayyip Erdoganand’s AK Party party won around 41 percent of the votes in Sundayand’s election and was projected to take 258 seats – 18 below the minimum required to rule alone. The result was a stunning rebuke to Erdoganand’s ambitions to expand his powers in a new presidential system.
All three opposition parties have spoken against a coalition with the AK Party after Erdogan led a fierce and confrontational campaign in favor of the party, brushing aside his constitutional neutrality.
